8. Nova API policy updates
Spec: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/547850/
- Weekly Progress: No progress in this. first concentrating on its dependency on 'consistent policy name' - https://review.openstack.org/#/c/606214/

9. Nova API cleanup
Spec: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/603969/ 
- Weekly Progress: No progress on this. I am thinking to keep it open till T cycle and we keep adding more and more API cleanup in this and then discuss that what all we can fix or not. This way we can avoid the re-iterate of API cleanup fixes. Obviously we cannot find all API cleanup till T but it is good to cover most of them together. Thoughts ?
